|Moody Denver Airport|
With mobile shots I typically stick to mobile tools for processing. The built in Google+ tools are pretty decent for most edits and processing, but I tend to use VSCO's excellent VSCO Cam for Android for the editing tools. I've tried using other dedicated camera apps, but with the Moto X's quick and easy flick motion to open the camera up I just tend to use that for convenience. While looking at this photo I thought I'd actually put it through Aperture and +Topaz Labs to see what we could get. I liked the radial lines in the clouds, but they were so full of color noise that I couldn't really get rid of them. So I converted the clouds to black & white, and masked them into the color photo. Because a JPEG photo doesn't allow for a whole lot of manipulation before pixel teasing becomes pixel destroying (and I'll be the first to admit, pixels were harmed in this photo) I added a heavy vignette to hide some of the damage.
The shot works for me because I was tired after a quick trip to Houston, and had read some conspiracy theory on why the airport was built, and what was under the airport. It was all very interesting to read while sitting half awake in the airport, but after spending 5 minutes researching it it sounds like good B movie material. I won't link to the conspiracy site that a friend gave me, but I'm sure a Google search will bring them up.
